This Cougar is no pussycat. As a child he suffered from chronic asthma but refused to give in to the debilitating ailment. He fought it with mind, body and training. A living example of what is achievable if the will is strong.
As Cougar himself puts it: "I believe if you are not mentally tough your physical attributes suffer."
On the football field Cougar has played League, Union and Aussie Rules. He enjoys water-skiing, snow-skiing, kickboxing, Thai boxing and martial arts. Cougar was twice NSW Kickboxing Champion and, in 1994/1995 was Kickboxing Champion for Australia in the Cruiser and Supercruiser weight divisions.
His determination to always overcome the highest obstacle makes The Wall his most pleasurable challenge.
And the asthma? Like the other challenges, Cougar has learnt to conquer them all.
